An Important Hinge Joint
The elbow is an important area of the body. Injuries and conditions related to the elbow can make completing everyday activities difficult. The bone of the upper arm, the humerus, and the bones of the forearm, the radius and ulna, form this hinge joint. These bones work together to make movements of flexion, extension, and rotation.
Like other areas of the body, elbow injuries can affect people of all ages and lifestyles. Sprains, dislocations, and fractures are very common. Most of the time, elbow injuries found in children, teenagers, or young adults occur during activities such as sports or falls. Fractures occur more often in older adults due to the loss of bone strength or muscle mass.
